Description

Taking care of sensitive skin doesn't have to be hard. Each Tide PODS contains breakthrough 3-in-1 laundry solution with super-concentrated detergent, stain remover and color protector that is specially designed free of dyes and perfumes. Simply put in one pac for most loads, but use two pacs for large loads and three pacs for extra large loads. For a simple, worry-free laundry experience that's gentle on skin, Tide PODS Free & Gentle laundry detergent will keep your family looking and feeling great. It outperformed the leading free detergent on 10 different stains (1). Unlike many other HE detergents that can slow washers down because of too many suds, Tide HE Turbo contains quick collapsing suds and targets tough stains. So you can get amazing results without the extra rinse cycles to remove the suds. (1) under standard single-wash conditions on Polycotton fabric in a standard top-loading washer

Q: With regard to using 1 or 2 pods/load, please provide specific info on what constitutes a "large" load in terms of volume, weight, etc. Otherwise, it's both subjective and varies by washer capacities.

submitted by Phaux - 1 year ago
  • A: This is an excellent question. Washing machines have different capacities that may affect load sizes. We recommend you first check the manual for your machine. In the meantime, when a washing machine drum is around half full, you have a medium or regular wash load. For a large load, the machine will be about three quarters of the way full and for an extra large load, fill the drum. But, be careful not to overload your machine, since clothes need to be able to move freely. If you have other questions, or if we can help further, please give us a call at (800) 879-8433.

Q: Has Tide changed the formula for the free & gentle pods? They used to be a milky white color but now they are yellow. I'm afraid the new formula will cause me to break out.

submitted by Jamie - 2 years ago
  • A: Jamie have you found the milky ones yet?

    submitted byLaura - 1 year ago
  • A: Hi Jamie. This is a great question. There has been no change to the formula of Tide Free & Gentle PODS™. They may look different, but all of the ingredients and formulary is exactly as it once was. If you have any other questions or if we can help you further, please let us know by calling (800) 879-8433.

Q: Why the change from the milky white to the unpleasant looking yellow?

submitted by PLC - 9 months ago
  • A: Thank you for asking about our Tide Free & Gentle PODS™ and the more yellow color. Some of the non-performance enhancing ingredients were removed. This did not affect their cleaning ability, but the yellow tone is a result of that change. Tide Free & Gentle PODS™ still delivers the same great performance while being just as gentle of skin as before.

Q: These seem to be causing lots of excessive sudsing in my HE washer. I only put in one pod. This has caused my washer to leak all over the floor! What's going on?!

submitted by meganlyb - 2 years ago
  • A: Megan, we're very sorry this happened to you. None of our detergents will cause too many suds if you use them according to the instructions. If suds are overflowing from the machine, add 1 cup of vinegar then run a rinse cycle with cold water. If the machine is overloaded, suds can become trapped in fabric if there is not enough room for them to circulate freely. It may also help to run a monthly clean out of your machine following the manufacture's suggestions. If you have questions, give us a call at (800) 879-8433.

Q: Is it suitable for color laundry or is it just for white clothes (all the pictures are white)?

Q: Do I place the pods where the liquid detergent go? If not where?

submitted by ashley - 2 years ago
  • A: Hi Ashley. No, do not place PODS™ in the liquid detergent dispenser. Instead, toss your PODS™ into the back of the washing drum before adding your items to be washed. If you have any questions, give us a call at (800) 879-8433.

My favorite laundry detergent. Cleans my clothes perfectly without any unnecessary additives or dyes. If you smell it close up it does have a nutty smell but it doesn’t make your clothes smell like it.

Cleans better than other detergents but it smells. All my clothes have this offensive herbal scent to it. I tried the ones with scent, but I think I’m too sensitive for it. I decided to go with a different brand.

This cleans just as good as the scented tide. I don't like too much perfume in my clothes. It gives me a headache and I am very particular about fragrance. This is perfect. It doesn't smell like weird chemicals.

Good for those with sensitive skin, used original tide for years until I couldn’t. Picked up this one and have replaced original tide. The scent is mild and the cleaning power equal to the original.

I switched to this one when we found out we were pregnant. I had heard from our pediatrician and a few others that the free and clear was less harsh on our baby skin. 2 years later, and we are still using this for our entire family & we love it. There have been no sensitivity issues from anybody which is great
